Scrappy Mug Rug

When I was trimming my blocks from my Scrappy Trips quilt, there were lots of pieced strips 2" wide or less. I had a little fun with these scrappy strips this afternoon:


It's a little mug rug. I used a bit of fusible fleece inside, and it's self-bound with the backing fabric. Had a little fun practising stippling too - until my needle slipped out of the needle clamp, hit the plastic on the free motion foot, bent in half, and then broke. In the space of a few seconds, as I was stippling along at full tilt. Not sure why that happened... Thankfully the shank just dropped out on my work and the bent needle end stayed on the thread. Maybe I need to start using safety goggles!

  1. I love it! And watch your eyes! I've only had that happen to me once, but it's kind of scary!
